Pastoral Area

Pastoral Area

The pastoral field offers different spaces for greater individual or group self-awareness, reflection and celebration of belief involving all members of the university community.

The purpose of the Blanquerna Foundation is to train students and professionals at the university from a Christian viewpoint, as proposed by the scholar Ramon Llull and his literary work Blanquerna, which the Foundation wants to perpetuate, renewing and updating its spirit.

Pastoral action promotes the incorporation of the Gospels and the person of Jesus in university life, especially in the process of exploration and developing students as people, citizens and professionals. We make a wide range of activities available to students and other members of the Blanquerna community, which are organized in groups that meet regularly. Find out about them all and join the group you like best!

The university is a place of knowledge (knowing) but also of 'being'. This is a group of students who want to look more deeply into their being, their existence and connect knowledge with their lives through dialogue, reflection and listening. The 'Being and Knowing' group is interested in the themes of human existence, current and eternal themes, questions approached through humanistic awareness.

What are the aims of the group?

  • To create a space for dialogue and reflection on major human issues, uniting university 'knowledge' with being a 'person'; theory with practice; a space for reflection based on experience and life.
  • To share with respect by listening.
  • To educate through dialogue and encourage questions about meaning.
  • To create a transversal space at Blanquerna; with participants from all Blanquerna courses and faculties.
  • To encourage interest in inner life, reflection, self-knowledge, thinking and personal growth.
  • To familiarize participants with the Christian religion's contributions in the fields of reflection, self-knowledge, thought and personal growth.

Face-to-face meetings in a bar or café on a weekday evening. There are also cultural meetings at exhibitions, museums and theaters with subsequent discussions led by Anna Eva Jarabo or Jordi Sànchez.

What is it?
A process based on meetings and training to prepare for the celebration of the sacrament of Baptism.

Who is it for?
Students from any course at Blanquerna who wish to train to celebrate Baptism (with the possibility of celebrating Baptism-Confirmation-Eucharist) taking advantage of the university environment.

How does it work?
It is based on 2 monthly meetings in a small group during 1 academic year (face-to-face and virtual) accompanied by a member of the Blanquerna-URL Pastoral Service. During the meetings, different aspects of
life and a specific training itinerary for initiation into Christianity will be shared.

The Eucharist is celebrated in the chapels of the School of Communication and International Relations and the School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences every Wednesday at 2:15 p.m. and 2:10 p.m., respectively. The service lasts approximately one hour.

The world needs people who dare to dream and make it fairer.

  • We will share a space of accompaniment from where we will review your involvement as volunteers.

Who is it for?
Students of all Blanquerna degrees who are eager to discover and work from the very heart of social transformation.
